    Intro. to Art History

    This introductory course is a survey of the relationships between painting, sculpture, and architecture and the societies that produced them from across time and across the globe.
  • AR-221

    Basic Drawing

    This introductory observational drawing course focuses on developing perceptual acuity in the engagement of three-dimensional objects and space and provides the student with basic proficiency in the translation of the perception of these objects and spaces onto the two-dimensional drawing surface. A variety of drawing materials are used.

    Basic Design

    The introductory study of the elements of two-dimensional design such as line, shape, value, color, and texture and their integration into compositions that are unified and dynamic is the focus of this course. A variety of organizational systems are explored, and the systematic study of color is initiated.

    Circuits and Sensors

    This course introduces students to instrumentation of bioengineering including ECG, EEG, radiological imaging, and routine biomedical laboratory measures such as blood pressure, cell counts, blood and urine tests, and statistical analysis of data. Students will discuss principles of circuits, signals and systems in the context of operating principles of bioelectrical systems at multiple physiological scales and provides the fundamental background required to interface biological systems with circuits and sensors for measurements. Topics include bioelectric measurement, signal processing, and dialysis. Prerequisites: BE101 and MA106
  • BE-250

    Quantitative Human Physiology

    An introductory course in physiological systems and feedback control theory for biomedical engineers. It aims to apply systems theory and classical feedforward and feedback control in the context of physiological systems.
  • BI-203

    Human Biology/Lab

    This course includes a study of the structural and functional relationships of human organisms. Emphasis will be placed on both the normal and abnormal functioning of each system.
  • BI-204

    Sci. in Perspective:Biology

    This course explores the basic principles of life for students who, as informed individuals, will need to develop their awareness of the biological aspects of personal and societal choices. Emphasis will be placed upon women in relation to the themes of evolution, organization, ecology, and the societal impact of biotechnology.
  • BI-209

    Intro.Microbiology/Lab

    This course provides the student of biological sciences with an introduction to microbiology and some of its applications. The major topics are: structure, function, taxonomy, and growth of prokaryotes and eukaryotes; microbial metabolism; prokaryotic genetics; viruses; the role of microbes in disease and host defenses; and microbial ecology. The laboratory will study the practice and principles of microbial analysis, characterization, and identification. Prerequisite: BI 104 or instructor permission
  • BI-210

    Cell Biology/Lab

    This course will focus on the structure and function of eukaryotic cells, including membrane structure and function, protein trafficking, cell signaling, cell cycle control, cytoskeleton and motility, neurophysiology, and tissue biology. Laboratory exercises include cytochemistry, protein and receptor analysis, and organelle isolation and characterization. Prerequisite: BI 209 or instructor permission
  • BI-211

    Pathophysio.& Nutri.Therapy

    This course examines selected pathophysiologic concepts, including mechanisms of disease causation; immune processes; cellular growth and proliferation; injury and metabolic stress; and dysfunctions of the circulatory, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary, nervous, and endocrine systems. Students will also consider risk factors and physiological adaptation to various disease conditions. Course emphasizes medical nutrition therapy in acute and chronic disease. Prerequisites: BI 105 and BI 106, NU 205, CH 101 and CH 102. A grade of C- or above must be earned in all prerequisites.
  • BI-212

    Pathophysiology

    This course is an introduction to the basic concepts of pathophysiology. Students will examine the phenomena that cause and produce alterations in human physiologic function and the resulting human response. Upon completion of the course, students will understand pathophysiological changes, including how pathological processes are manifested, progress in the body, and primary and secondary effects. The course is based on illness and disease within a systems framework across the lifespan. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C in BI 106 or permission of the instructor
